    ^Tom just put this far more eloquently than I could.
    It’s time to let this go and analyze more productive things. This is a logic circle that only gets deeper.
    I like Roller’s vehemence here, it’s a town look to me. I’d like Rod to do something, but I’m probably just going to slot him scum until that happens.

    Vote Rod

    What did you like about Tom's post. Specifically.


    I don’t think there’s any value to be had in Rod/Roller chasing each other around the SK/PM scenario, and shifting focus to things more likely to bear fruit was necessary.
    Tom’s post summed up my thoughts on the subject pretty well.


    But you believe Rod to be scum? Tom's post was pretty wishy-washy on his thoughts about Rod, but you said you agreed with it, and still voted Rod. So just to be clear, you don't believe (based on what Tom's post said) that Rod's PM debacle was an alignment tell, but you still voted him?

    I can't make those two thoughts line up in my head.

    Okay, fair enough.
    My thoughts on Rod are based more in Rod’s play than any potential slip up based on “Modkillgate”. I’ve mentioned previously that Rod is not playing like what I’ve come to expect. There’s no drive, no attempts to solve, and his early game flip flop stance on Tom is spurious. Couple that with no engagement with the thread at large, and you have what appears to be a scummy Rod.

    My issue with the Highroller/Rod situation is, if we move past the angleshooty, role pm scenario, there’s still no real reason that Rod can’t believe that Roller is scum. If
    you were able to read the town win con in thread, it means you didn’t need to have received it in private. I’m not going to let Roller clear himself with that, just as I’m going to take his Venkman claim with some salt.
    That being said, this is unlike the Rodemy that I’ve seen before. This Rod is a listless dish rag, being kicked around the kitchen floor. There’s no fire, no punch, no crazy theories.
    In short, both slots are in flux for me, with Roller being >town and Rod <town.
    oh hey this is the first time I've seen town tubba all game
    Where you been bro

    We're at a point of the game where everyone needs to have an opinion on Rodemy.

    This:
    Quote from Elijah »
    i'll keep it real with you tomo salamo i havent been keeping up but remember a few rod posts. they rang like level 1 inno villa rather than some sort of wolf, and i wasnt feeling it.


    Isn't going to cut it.

    Elijah, Tubba, Atog!Slot, Fuwa, Ruma, RE, and Terry need to take hard stances on it. I know some of them have talked about him and taken soft stances but at this point I need to know why each of you aren't voting for Rodemy.

    And Rodemy really needs to claim his flavor.


    Well, I mentioned the consensus on Rod as being suspicious, and have posed several questions to them as well. I’m waiting for those to be addressed and then I plan on moving forward with that information.

    I'm moderately worried about the level of consensus we have at the moment. But if the scum team is mostly in Rod/Vez/Fuwa/tom/atog then it makes sense.

    Also Rumas town credit is completely gone and he should probably be in the above group.


    The consensus statement strikes a chord with me as well, but it's day one without a lot of side action so it's whatever.

    @Rod
    Who is pushing you with impure thoughts?
    What about Tom's early game made you inclined to town slot him, when its practically a meme for you to always suspect him?
    Lastly, is that the extent you're willing to claim? I ask because I believe flavour might hold more importance than a standard game.

    Weirdly as much as I disagree with everything Vez said about Highrollers Gozer plan it makes me feel better about him. I don't think that is something scum would make up to push someone. It's too paranoid.
    I thought his partial claim was a good look.


    Who's partial claim?

    @Highroller
    Peter Venkman showed a sadistic side in the beginning of the film, continuously shocking the male test subject during an "experiment" that he didn't seem to take seriously. I think it's unlikely that Venkman could be a killer, I wouldn't rule it out offhand.
    You're being silly right now.

    Im not against claiming, but we're so far off script, I'm not sure how useful it would be.
    What do you mean by "we're so far off script"?


    It was an over the top silly way to make a point about flavour gaming not likely being effective. We are off script because in order for your Peter Venkman claim to hold the weight you want it to, the movie and the game setup need to mesh. Richard Peck, didn't die, humans didn't get pulled into the containment unit. The setup and the movie have deviated, so flavour isn't going to be indicative.

    @Vez It's D1 and we're 7 pages in. One shouldn't be set in their ways at this point. I feel like having 3 firm town reads and a firm scum read is pretty committed.

    @Tubba his progression on tom feels incredibly fake. Like just completely made up in a way that screams scum to me. Ask me later on Tom, he pinged me wrong initially but after pondering on it some I've changed my mind.


    That's fair, I had a similar thought process there, but I'm going to come back to you about Tom. The progression on him is a big part of the read, so your stance on him/Rod is of interest.

    @Vaimes
    Can you explain where the derp clear in #308 is trying to come from?

    @Grape
    What makes you feel so strongly about Rod? What's changed with your read on Tom?

    @Vez
    I'm also interested in your answer to Geape's question at the end of #301.

    @RE1031
    Watched it yet?

    What do you like about Tom's game so far? If I recall it's pretty much a meme that you are suspicious of him in every game. What's different this game?

    @All
    I think Gozer the Gozerian sounds the tamest. Like he's just a guy from Gozeropolis, carrying out their day.

    Vote Gozer the Gozerian

    Everyone's seen the movie Ghostbusters, right? You know the guy played by Bill Murray? Do you think he's a serial killer?
    Nope, have not seen.
    Though given the nature of Highroller's claim, I suspected the mass claim had more to do with flavor than actual roles.

    unvote


    Hold up. Stop whatever you're supposedly doing with your life right now, and watch this movie.

    Vote RE1031

    Also Richard Peck did nothing wrong.
    Fight me.
